The amount you pay will vary on whether you are a:
Commonwealth supported students (HECSHELP)
To calculate the cost of study (course):
Step 1:
Go to the Online Handbook and for the course you are interested in take a note of
 the Fee Band (Student Contribution Band)
 the EFTSL value
Step 2:
Look up the student contribution rate in the table below.
UNSW Student Contribution Amounts 2007
UNSW has set the following Student Contribution amounts for Commonwealth supported students. (In 2007, all 'post2005 students', including those who commenced a program of study on or after 1 January 2005, will pay student contributions at 125% of the indicative Commonwealth rate.)
Individual courses (units of study) are classified according to the following discipline (or subject) areas
UNSW Student Contribution Charges for 2007
Student Contribution Band 
Student Contribution 
Post2005 Students (including those commencing in 2005 or 2006) 
Pre2005 Students Commonwealth Supported (HECS) 
Band 1 (humanities, behavioural science, social studies, foreign languages, visual and performing arts) 
$4,996 
$3,998 
Band 2 (accounting, administration, economics, commerce, mathematics, statistics, computing,built environment, health, engineering, science, surveying, agriculture) 
$7,118 
$5,694 
Band 3 (law, dentistry, medicine, veterinary science) 
$8,333 
$6,665 
National Priorities (education, nursing) 
$3,998 
$3,998 
For pre2005 HECS students who began their program before 1 January 1997, the student contribution for 2007 is $3,001. The pre1997 rate is indexed each year.
Step 3:
Take your calculator and multiply the EFTSL value by the student contribution rate for the course you are interested in.
For example the course ACCT1501  Accounting and Financial Management 1A is in Student Contribution Band 2 ($7,118 for a student who is starting in 2007) and has an EFTSL value of 0.125. The student contribution charge for this course is: $7,118 x 0.125 = $889.75
To calculate your annual contribution you will have to follow these steps for each of the courses you intend to study this year. Your total annual contribution will be the total of each amount (but keep in mind eligible students who pay upfront receive a 20% discount).
Example
Ana commences a Bachelor of Commerce in 2007. In her first year she enrols in 5 Commerce courses (each 6 UOC) and 3 Arts courses (each 6 UOC), and thus undertakes a standard annual fulltime workload of 48 units of credit.
Her 2007 student contribution amount will be calculated as follows:
Example
Example: 
Commerce 
$7,118 
x (6 UOC divided by 48 UOC = 0.125 EFTSL) 
x 5 
= $4,448 
Commerce cost, Band 2 
multiplied by EFTSL value for the course 
multiplied by no. of courses 

Arts 
$4,996 
x (6 UOC divided by 48 UOC = 0.125 EFTSL) 
x 3 
= $1,873 
Arts cost, Band 1 
multiplied by EFTSL value for the course 
multiplied by no. of courses 


= $6,321 Total payable 
Multiply the total amount by 80% to calculate the upfront payment option
Australian citizens and holders of a permanent humanitarian visa receive a 20% discount for full upfront payment or partial payments of $500 or more. 
Note: Student Contribution annual amounts are quoted above. Student Contributions are charged and are payable at the commencement of each semester. Failure to finalise payment or supply a Tax File Number may result in your enrolment being cancelled for that semester.
Feepaying Students
Students in fullfee places (nonCommonwealth supported students) will be charged per course (unit of study) according to the schedule of tuition fees.
To calculate the cost of a unit of study (course):
Step 1:
Go to the Online Handbook and take a note of the unit of credit (UOC) value for the course.
Step 2:
Go to the schedule of tuition fees for the faculty relevant to the course you are interested in studying. To calculate the charge for a course, refer to the course prefix, the course classification and the student classification to determine the fee per unit of credit.
Step 3:
Take your calculator and multiply the fee per unit of credit by the UOC value for the course.
For example: In 2007 an international student is enrolling in a Faculty of Commerce and Economic course, ACCT3563, which has a value of 6 UOC and the course is classified as undergraduate. The fee for this course will be 6 x $410 = $2460.00.
To calculate your annual fee you will have to follow these steps for each of the courses you intend to study this year. Your total annual fee (payable before each semester) will be the total of these amounts.
International students can obtain more information about fees from UNSW International.
Eligible undergraduate and postgraduate students (Australian citizens or holders of permanent humanitarian visas) will be able to borrow money from the Australian Government to pay for their tertiary studies through a scheme called FEEHELP for which a 20% loan fee applies to undergraduate students.
For more information, see the Australian Government's online booklet FEEHELP Information.
Additional Note
The fees and contributions listed above apply to enrolments in 2007. Fees are reviewed annually and may increase during the period of study.
